Obama in a battle of Wits With Walker Unarmed

Sphere: Related Content

The Obama administration's not ready for prime time act got old a long time ago but it does make for some fun moments at his expense.

Obama had this to say today:

"I don't think it does anybody any good when public employees are denigrated or vilified or their rights are infringed upon,"
Governor Walker had this rebuttal:

“I'm sure the President knows that most federal employees do not have collective bargaining for wages and benefits while our plan allows it for base pay. And I'm sure the President knows that the average federal worker pays twice as much for health insurance as what we are asking for in Wisconsin. At least I would hope he knows these facts.

“Furthermore, I’m sure the President knows that we have repeatedly praised the more than 300,000 government workers who come to work every day in Wisconsin.
“I’m sure that President Obama simply misunderstands the issues in Wisconsin, and isn’t acting like the union bosses in saying one thing and doing another.”
Game, set and match to the Badger governor.

Is Obama actually still so politically infantile that he allows himself to be set up like this or is he just surrounded by a bunch of idiots? I'm guessing both. Maybe he received some internal polling that said it would be a winning issue for him to back the money-grubbing unions or maybe he just lost a bet to the vile Richard Trumka while knockin back a few during their frequent meetings and had to go out and involve himself in internal Wisconsin issues because he's the light-bringer or something.

Whatever the case, he's getting schooled by a first-term Midwestern governor at every turn.
